Hit on the head, dull headache throughout the day, eye tenderness. Suggestive treatment?

Yesterday I was wakeboarding and caught an edge and came down hard on the back of my head. I think I knocked myself out, and had a dull headache the rest of the day. Today I have just a slight headache, but my left eye is tender for some reason. I don t have insurance, so I don t want to go to the doctor unless I absolutely need to. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. First of all, I would like to reassure you that there is no need to worry, as your symptoms suggest a mild head injury.

As of now, there is no need to go to a doctor.

Please watch for warning symptoms such as severe headache, vomiting, blurred vision, fits, weakness of arm or leg, etc. If any of these symptoms develop, you can go to a doctor and get a CT scan of head done.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
